An opportunity to acquire a delightful 2 bedroom stone terraced quarry worker’s cottage believed to date from 1850 and with a quintessentially English cottage garden.
Approaching the property there is parking available on adjacent common land with pathways which zig-zag across leading to the front, rear and in between the two rows of quarry workers ’cottages. All indicative of the quirkiness and delightful rural location.
This charming character cottage is believed to date from 1850 and is an archetypal “two up, two down “but it is understood that, originally, this would have been two cottages! The kitchen opens into the breakfast area and has a Georgian paned window and door to the lovely garden. There is a good range of wall and base units in white with contrasting dark work surfaces. There are ceramic floor tiles in terracotta and toning splashback tiles in rust/green/cream. There is a large sink and drainer with a small quirky window above. Appliances included in the sale are a gas double oven with 4 ring burner and cooker hood above, a washing machine and an under the counter fridge and freezer. The kitchen opens into the breakfast area which currently has a table and chairs with space on the other side for an additional comfortable chair – perhaps an ideal spot for a rocking chair? The door leads out onto the terrace of the west facing garden which is a real sun trap. An oak internal door leads into the sitting room which has a similar layout with a small quirky window at one end of the room and a Georgian paned window at the other end which is overlooking the garden. The open tread wooden stairs and balustrade lead to a spacious landing with an airing cupboard providing useful storage. Given the eaves, it is quite lofty here in contrast to the cosiness of the low ceilings and white painted beams of the ground floor.
There are 2 good size double bedrooms which are both similar in terms of size and each with a large window overlooking the garden. First on the right is the master bedroom and beyond that is bedroom 2 which is currently used as a guest room/dressing room with large built-in wardrobes with shelves and hanging space. The bathroom is generously proportioned with space to the left for a large freestanding cupboard with a small quirky window alongside. The floor tiles are in neutral colours with full height tiling along the left-hand wall and around the bath which are predominantly white with pretty pale blue flowers and an inset floral border also in blue and white. There is a white WC, wash hand basin and P-shaped bath with shower above and double curved shower screens.
There is a terrace adjacent to the property with a seating area and flower borders together with a small wildlife pond and edged with flower borders. There is a pathway to the left-hand side leading to the end of the garden and a shed which is in addition to a larger shed on the other side of the cottage near the kitchen door. There is an area of lawn, more flowers and fencing on all sides making it safe for children and pet friendly. The borders are well-stocked with cottage flowers and it is a well-maintained garden.
